Sully Baseball Podcast – The Roller Coaster Diamondbacks Season – September 10, 2018

Are the Diamondbacks a dominant team powering their way into the post season? Or are they a maddeningly inconsistent team who find new ways to lose critical games?

They have been both this year and that could cost them a chance at a winnable pennant.

Running out of time for the snakes in this episode of Sully Baseball.

Driving along along the 5 freeway, I began to think about ways to put together a pitching staff that doesn’t require wearing a bullpen down but still tries to keep starters from facing an order more than twice.

And in those categories, there are several subsets. Today, I will break those down.

It is September and a bounce here or a bounce there will be the difference between playing in October or not. The Brewers get that and are fortifying their team in any way they can.

Meanwhile Jim Kaat wrote a surreal tweet.

 

Not only does it make Kaat look like a factually incorrect bitter old man, but it also illustrates a problem of how MLB markets and presents itself.

I think Christian Yelich is in a groove.

A day after clubbing 2 homers, he went 6 for 6 in an extra inning game and with a game tying triple, made it a cycle. Don’t put a qualifier on this one. He completed the cycle before the game went into extras!

The Milwaukee bats are heating up and Yelich just seems happy to be out of Miami.
